Western Bulldogs defender Matthew Suckling is looking increasingly unlikely to be named in the Grand Final side.

Suckling, who missed the preliminary final due to an Achilles injury, was restricted to light duties at the Dogs’ open training session today at Whitten Oval.

Veteran key defender Dale Morris also trained away from the main group, however, is expected to play.

Meanwhile, ruckman Jordan Roughead who suffered an eye injury after copping a football to the face during last Saturday’s win over the Giants, trained strongly and is expected to take his place in the side.
